Agfa Unveils :Anapurna M1600
Belgium-based Agfa Graphics yesterday introduced its new large-format :Anapurna M1600 system. Based on a UV inkjet process, the M1600 is a 4-colour device with an additional white-ink channel that can reach a maximum resolution of 720 x 1,440 dpi.
According to the company’s assessment of its large-format portfolio, the M1600’s white-ink printing capabilities are based on the :Anapurna Mw and :Anapurna M2050 system, while also providing higher production speeds associated with its :Anapurna M2050 and :Anapurna M2 systems.
“:Anapurna M1600 is a production workhorse designed to guarantee consistent high quality output even under peak workloads,” said Willy Van Dromme, Marketing Manager for Wide Format Inkjet at Agfa Graphics. “This system gives the best-fit printing mode because every application requires a particular balance between speed and quality. We also made the :Anapurna M1600 easy to use.
“Media loading and changing from rigid to flexible materials is fast and straightforward, and the system features a very intuitive operator interface. In fact we integrated all the best features from the :Anapurna M2050.”
The :Anapurna M1600 works with rigid medias up to 4.5-centimetres thick and a width of up to 1.58 metres. The system also features a 2-zone vacuum table for media-handling flexibility.
